A knock at the door can herald many changes…

Christopher Kloeble tells stories of young people whose lives are abruptly altered. A scream rips through the silence, the phone rings – and, in an instant, everything is possible once more, or a love has gone wrong. Many of the changes Kloeble describes are minuscule: what concerns him are the tiny cracks in the lives of families, students, young men and women. He’s not interested in providing punch lines or seismic dramas: the author reports incidents from his protagonists’ quotidian lives, where love appears as often as death, and life’s everyday tears are of as much importance as its major fissures. And, throughout, his playful command of words and fiction contribute to the discerning reader’s pleasure.

A volume of short stories in which Christopher Kloeble focuses on turning points – polished, playful and precise.

"A plea for hope, written with a delicate touch and never lacking in humour.” - Julie Zeh on Christopher Kloeble’s novel “Amongst Loners”
